Splinter Cell: Conviction a 30-35 hour romp

Splinter Cell: Conviction will pack 30-35 hours worth of entertainment, creative director Maxime Beland says. Game director Patrick Redding’s recent estimate of 12-16 hours apparently didn’t include the hours for the game’s competitive multiplayer mode, Deniable Ops.

“Deniable Ops is going to last people like 20-25 hours, easily – there’s a lot of modes and maps,” Beland said in a recent interview. “Then we’ve got co-op, story – easily 30-35 hours of gameplay.”

“…we should be selling the game for 200 bucks!” he reckoned. Jokingly, I’m sure.
